UMN is more regional than WUSTL, so I think a match would be smidge optimistic, but you can definitely negotiate. I feel confident you will get more out of WUSTL. General consensus here is that WUSTL won't be making "final" offers until close to/after the deposit deadline (with more money maybe to come in the summer). So, by all means negotiate, but the wisdom is to wait until 4-6 weeks from the deadline (so beginning of March).
